    It's called a buzz cut.
    Any SANE man with a reciding hairline should practice it.
    It looks 1000% better than any "cover my baldness" trick and is maintenance free and so easy to do

    A truly caring man, who sees the need of his fellow man, and fills it straightway.

    I believe any man who has a combover gives so much delight to the rest of us he should get a government subsidy

    I spent most of an evening laughing at some guy in a disco with some antennae tracking Sputnik with flailing combover elements. I was put in mind of nunchuks in the hands of Bruce Lee

    I will refrain from suggesting what I will subsidize for ladies when in government lest I am accused of sexism. Anyone who cannot imagine doesn't deserve to know

    Way too many guys just give up. It doesn't sound like you have that horrible of a balding problem. No offense, but if you have any hair at all there's no reason to put on the "bald guy with a goatee" uniform.

    Some guys have a nice shaped head for being bald, others do not.
    I didn’t choose to lose all my hair, and I thought I was ready for the look, but I don’t have a head that lends itself to baldness. Nevertheless I’m bald as they come.
    It has begun to grow out again, but you have to look real close to see it.
    I plan to keep it buzzed down, it’s just another item like teeth, vision, hearing that were good while they lasted, but their gone and ain’t coming back.
    Golden years?, yeah right.

    I keep my remaining hair tight: #2 buzz. Bald guys with shaved heads - too much of a cliche/uniform to me.

    Google, "everybody who has lived forever, and will never die".

    The answer is "NOBODY".

    The trick is in living a life well spent, and avoiding the caprice and nonsense that holds most of us back from really enjoying every moment.

    Bald head, hairy head.
    Who cares?

    It's what's inside that head that matters.

    Express freely that which comes from those neurons and synapses inside there.

    Do more good than harm.
    Love your neighbors, take care of your family.
    Serve your community.
    Have lots of incredible sex, drink quality whiskey.
    Make good music.

    Okay, I'm gonna shut up now.
    :(

    This proves that Yul Brynner, who pretty much invented the shaved head look, could rock a comb over like no one else could. Dang, that guy was dope! No wonder women threw themselves at him.

    maybe. maybe....

    but take someone like Ed Harris... Handsome AND rocked the 'holy crap, my hair' his whole career. an actor's actor who was stuck... and he dealt with it without a gimmick.. Yul went for the gimmick.

    I grow my hair long really long then I cut all off and donate it to cancer society to make wigs for the victims , I'm 62 years old and less than 1% grey .
    this is my 8th time donating in a row , I dont care anything about how much hair I have , if it can help raise some ones esteem at a point of crisis I'm on it like flies to stink, I dont care if Im bald or not never been important to me.

    It does help if you have someone to share in MOST of those endeavors.

    Mr. Harris has a somewhat goofy skull. Mr. Brenner's skull is the envy of many a man with a full head of hair.

    I think Brenner made the right choice AND I think Harris would have followed suit if he'd had a similar skull.

    If I had a skull like Yul Brenner had, I would shave it all off today. My "issue" is my hair is incredibly thick, sides and back - and the top is just not a match for it. More thickness on top would help but honestly, if my hair was thinner on the sides and in the back that would help just about as much. I don't want to have my hair cut every 5 weeks but honestly, that's my best route at this point. But I'm not complaining. I'm healthy, older than dirt, and I had my moment in the sun (without a scalp burn).

    I think one of the biggest disadvantages of shaving ones skull, is how dumb we can look with various hats. The Drummer in Batiste's band, on the Stephen Colbert show for instance. I think hats are pretty much perfect for guys like me, those who spend a lot of time outdoors and etc. If I do shave my head I lose a lot of the advantages I have with most types of hats worn in our culture.
